Myra here.

It’s Monday, What are You Reading is a meme hosted by Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee and Ricki from Unleashing Readers (brainchild of Sheila at BookJourney). Since two of our friends, Linda from Teacher Dance and Tara from A Teaching Life have been joining this meme for quite awhile now, we thought of joining this warm and inviting community.

  1. I really need to read The Goldfinch! But now I’m wondering if my expectations of it are too high! Oh, well. Have a great reading week! -Earl


  2. Taste of Colored Water looks good! Thanks for sharing the pictures!


  3. Myra, I love reading Gathering Books because you always manage to find the most interesting books and today is no exception. Thanks for sharing them and adding to my TBR list.


  4. The picture books sound wonderful,Myra – rich texts with rich ideas. And, I agree with Alex- you have such interesting books, always.

    I still have The Shadow Throne to read. It arrived when I was already buried in review books which have to come first. I have The Goldfinch on my Kindle. Looks like I’ll need to carve out a chunk of time for it. Come see my week here. Happy reading!


  6. Happy reading!

    Check out what we are reading this week.

  7. I need to get back to The Goldfinch! I was reading it over winter break, and then got distracted by other books. But I did like it. I better get back to it before I forget what was happening! I enjoyed The False Prince but haven’t felt compelled to continue it. Have you read The Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner? I can’t remember! It’s plot-driven and similar in some ways to plot of False Prince but much more focused on character, setting, and gorgeous writing.


  8. Both picture books look terrific, Myra. There is one teacher at school whose class theme this year is “heroes”, so I’ll send her the “Giant Steps” book title. Thank you!


  9. I must get A Taste of Coloured Water! Thanks for sharing it here. I also read Giant Steps this week. I loved the art and the concept but wish there had been more info in the back to share with students – beyond just the quotes.

    I am so glad you shared a review of A Taste of Colored Water, I’ve never seen that title before and can’t wait to read it! I think this will open up some interesting conversations in my classroom. Hope you have a wonderful week-and that you make it to yoga on Saturday 😉
